Does Newt get his creatures? By feats he's better, by implication and scaling Professor M is.

oh come on. Newt is an explorer of rare and magical creatures. He's not the type of wizard to focus on honing his craft but rather focuses more on finding and studying magical beasts and creatures. He is by no means on the same level as Minerva's magical prowess. She is a member of the order of the phoenix and has transfiguration second to none. Her dueling style is quick and precise; leaving no openings while dishing out continous barrages on her opponents.

I would say this as well. He was defending against Grindelwald on his own for a decent amount of time, someone who is comparable to Dumbledore and Voldemort. Minerva doesn't have the feats to compare to that. But she should be the superior dueller and witch

He is comparable to Dumbledore only when Grindelwald has the elder wand. We know that Dumbledore defeats Grindelwald who holds the elder which is the strongest wand ever.....that alone is proof enough to say they are not on par or comparable. The only one comparable to Dumbledore is Voldemort, who was able to fight an Elder wand Welding Dumbledore in a fair and nearly equal match.

OT: Minerva wins. she is far better in pretty much every way by means of dueling, magical knowledge, and power.

except dumbledore himself said they were comparable, just that he was "a shade more skillful" so yes, they are comparable. Dumbledore is obviously superior but they are in the same league
